Fania All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 2 ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A Latin soul party – beyond compare! The album's a completely wonderful live set that really captures the energy, excitement, and warm sociability of the hip New York scene at the end of the 60s. The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – played with effortless ease by a lineup that includes Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Bobby Quesada, Louie Ramirez, Ralph Robles, and some of the other heavy-hitters of the Latin soul years. (Just imagine trying to get so many jazz or rock talents together on one stage – it would never happen!) The album's incredible – and even the spoken introductions and crowd noise really help set the feel of the era's mighty magic power! Titles on this second volume include "Kikapoo Joy Juice", "If This World Were Mine", "Richie's Bag", "Red Garter Strut", and "Son Cuero Y Boogaloo". Firey stuff, and one of their best records!

✨✧ Bio RitmoOriza (main, Whiskey Barons Remix) (red colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Peace & Rhythm, 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
The main cut here is the best – a killer bit of funky salsa here from Bio Ritmo – served up with all the classic elements that's made us really love the group in recent years! The Whisky Barons remix kicks up the bottom with a very bassy vibe – nice, but in a way that ties the groove more to contemporary Caribbean rhythms! (Funky 45's, Latin) 7-inch, Vinyl record

CandidoCandido The Volcanic ... LP
ABC, 1957. Fair ... $4.99
Candido's firey conga is backed by a tight jazz group conducted by Ernie Wilkins. The players include Art Farmer, Jimmy Cleveland, Hank Jones, and Ernie Royal, and although they don't get to solo much, they play nice and hard, and give Candido great support in the background. Tracks include "Lady in Red", "Warm Blue Stream", "Tin Tin Deo", "Kinda Dukish", and "Takeela". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has moderate wear with splitting & aging. NOTE: Vinyl has heat warpage that makes the first track on each side unplayable.)

Joe LocoLatin Jewels ... LP
Fantasy, Early 60s. Very Good ... $23.99
Classic mellow Latin groovers from Joe, and one of the nicer sides he ever cut for Fantasy. The record's got Joe working with his quintet on a mixture of Latin standards – like "Frenesi", "Sin Ti", "Perfida", and "Amor, Amor, Amor" – and the groove is nicely jazzy, with Joe's usual "loco" touches on the keyboard. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red vinyl pressing. Cover has some light wear and a tiny bit of seam splitting.)

Armando PerazaWild Thing ... LP
Skye, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The only album ever cut by conga player Armando Peraza – the killer percussionist who worked with Cal Tjader in the 60s! The album's got a very similar feel to Cal's work of the time – blending together jazz, Latin, and groovy 60s rhythms – with lots of percussion on the bottom, and instrumentation that includes electric piano, funky flute, and some nice alto sax. Most tracks have the off-center sound that you'd expect from the Skye label – and arrangements are by Cal and Gary McFarland, so you know the tunes are pretty darn great! Titles include a mix of originals like "Viva Pereza", "Red Onions" "Granny's Samba", plus groovy covers like "Wild Thing", "Mony Mony", "Funky Broadway". LP, Vinyl record album

Willie RodriguezWillie Rodriguez Swings ... LP
Andale, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 14.98
Stunning sounds from Willie Rodriguez – easily one of the hardest, heaviest leaders on the 60s scene in New York! The record is a live one, but has the focus and intensity of Willie's best studio work for Fonseca – red hot grooves that are a fusion of Willie's Puerto Rican roots with some of the best pre-salsa modes of the time – a vibe that's a lot like the Joe Cuba Sextet at their best, with blistering piano and percussion in the rhythms, and some tight trumpet soaring out over the top! There's a few mellower tracks, but most numbers are groovers – and titles include "Gua Guanco #1", "Dolor Y Pena", "La Mulata Mariana", "Dame Un Chance", "El Velorio", "Ruby", and the great "Descarga".

Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man! ... LP
Battle, 1962. Very Good- ... $13.99
A seminal moment in the career of Mongo Santamaria – and probably the first record to show that he was destined for greatness! As you might guess from the title, the set features Mongo's key recording of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" – served up here in a sharp-edged Latin jazz version that pushed the tune into a whole new audience, and which was one of the first big groovers of its type in the pre-Latin Soul years! The group here is totally great – with players that include funky flautist Mauricio Smith, baritone genius Pat Patrick, and the always-great Bobby Capers – all key players who illustrate Santamaria's genius for picking horn players. Titles include "Watermelon Man", "Yeh Yeh", "Funny Money", "Go Git It", "Sauvito", "Cut That Cane", and "Bayou Roots". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label Battle pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Cal TjaderLive & Direct ... LP
Fantasy, 1959. Very Good- ... $14.99
Great live work from Cal Tjader – one of a number of sets but at his home turf of the Blackhawk Nightclub in San Francisco! The album's nicely laidback, with tracks that stretch out a bit more than Tjader's studio work for Fantasy Records – often hitting a slight Latin groove at times, but with a bit more of a straight jazz vibes feel overall! The great Lonnie Hewitt's on the group on piano, coloring in the tunes with some very soulful notes – and in addition to Cal's vibes, the rest of the lineup includes Victor Venegas on bass, and Willie Bobo on drums. Mongo Santamaria on congas and Rolando Lozano on flute join in on the track "Mambo Terrifico" – and other titles include "Racoon Straits", "Bad & The Beautiful", "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", and "The Continental". (Jazz, Latin) LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing! Cover has some wear.)
